Old man sitting by the railroad track dreaming of the
distance gone - took a hog-ride up to old saddleback on a
recon of old Saigon


Tall girl contemplates a sunny day looking over prison
yard wall - writes a ‘dear john’ to her boyfriend Ray -the
life she left behind gone wrong …gone wrong


chorus:

She says tell me when you hit the big time
Tell me when you hit the big time


Some people do the be-bop jive -some people do the black
cat moan - one hard man drives a pink Cadillac - petrified
of dyin” alone
Chester P Hackenbush dressed in black plays another
hippy rebel song - reads another homage to Jack
Kerouac
Now the green Manalishi’s gone - long gone long gone


chorus:

He says tell me when you hit the big time
Tell me when you hit the big time


When your house of cards is falling baby
and the jack in the box is calling you to set him free
keep on stallin’


if the Liberty Bell is tolling baby
keep your hands on the driving wheel
keep rollin’

Tell me when you hit the big time - Tell me when you hit the
big time


Destination angels dancing with the devil down on sunset
boulevard
nothing guaranteed repaid or on the level
it’s all a matter of who you are
may the road rise to meet you as you keep on keeping on
nothing can defeat you now nothing but Tequila Blonde

I thought I must be hearing whispered voices of a demon
Coming after me
Then I woke up in a cold hard sweat and man alive
They’ve got it in for me


All my paranoia all the shit that would annoy you
Then a noise within that says I’ve got an enemy
Then my eyes pick out a shape
Is this the point I meet my fate
Better get to them before they get to me


I’m creeping down the stairs
To catch those beasties unawares
Reach my backyard door
And realise that I’ve been here before


Space - Space and Time
If can’t give me any other space babe
Give me back what space is mine


Down there in the city where the devil never sleeps
You take a concubine
It’s no good ever running in the whole damn human race
When your ass is on the finishing line
If there’s a bigger fall from grace you had to turn a trick
Your manitou’s here at the shrine
You play a joker then an ace take it to another place
Killer - kill me one more time


I’m creeping down the stairs
To catch those beasties unawares
Reach my old front door
And realise that I’ve been there before

Space - space and time
If you don’t wanna let bygones be bygones
Then you’ll never be a friend of mine
Space - space and time
If you don’t want give me any space babe
Give me back what space is mine


Lay it on me man give me some more rhythm on the bass
Come on who’s the daddy who’s the goody who’s the baddy
Come on who’s the flame that lets the phoenix rise
Come on who’s the daddy who’s the goody who’s the baddy
Riding on the wings that make the eagles fly - come on us who’s the daddy
Space - space and time

Don’t you realise when somethings wrong
Is it wise to come on strong?
The perspirations running down my brow - now don’t look back
Just stick to now

 


I don’t want to wait a life time long
To hear the words fall from those lips that I’ve been waiting upon
Tell me in that voice I know so well
Speak to me in silent tongues - don’t break this magic spell

 


I don’t want silver I don’t want gold
Don’t want your ghost to chase me when I’m old
But if your love can transcend time and make you mine

 


Chorus:

I don’t wanna stop believin’ tell me that your hearts receiving
Over and Out - Over and Out ( are you receiving )
Over and Out ( are you receiving ) Over and Out

 


I don’t wan’t to waste this life alone
I don’t want to hear you play that same old sad love song
Tell me in that voice I know so well
Speak to me in silent tongues - don’t break this magic spell


I don’t want silver - I don’t want gold
Don’t want your ghost to chase me when I’m old
But if your love can transcend time and make you mine

Chorus:

I don’t wanna stop believin’ tell me that your hearts receiving
Over and Out - Over and Out ( are you receiving )
Over and Out ( are you receiving ) Over and Out


Something in the nights revealing
Tell me what your heart is feeling yeah
I hear your voice a calling me from way out there
Take me where your love is leading


Over and Out ( are you receiving ) Over and Out ( Are you receiving )
Over and Out

My story born so long ago, back in ’75
About a troubled troubadour trying to survive
Falling into rapture by the shores of woebegone
His heart cries out “I’m captured”
His head it shouted move along and keep on movin’ on

Well he felt this storm a raging and it cut right to his core

Chorus:
When you get too much of something you don’t want it anymore
When you get too much of something you don’t want it anymore.


Broken up in pieces and washed up on the tide
A love that turned to driftwood - a promise cast aside
A charming womaniser took her hand one day - and though he’d idolised her she packed her things and ran away
Her heart was stole away

Well he felt his pulse a racing for the beauty he’d adored

Chorus:
When you get too much of something you don't want it anymore
When you get too much of something you don't want it anymore


Come all ye men of venture so lovesick and forlorn
You hostages to fortune - riding through the dawn on and

on and on


When you feel that storm a raging and it kicks you out the door

Chorus:
When you get too much of something you don't want it anymore
When you get too much of something you don't want it anymore


Anymore….. don’t want it any more

Mothers in pictures 

Fathers in all your gossip stories

Read it in the standard

The light of the world goes down

When it comes to mystery

all your mysteries are told

My own imagination seems to

run away with you

To fools who know 

Who - who - oo

All night parties

Who - who - oo

All night parties

Was it Mona Lisa

Or just another Brigitte Bardot

Captured in the evening

As the sun goes down

When it comes to history

All your strategies are told

My only infinite reguge is to

Run away with you

To fools who know

Who - who - oo

All night parties

Who - who - oo

All night parties

Most of my life I've been strangled with fear

When I need anybody baby I'll let you know

Most of my days I've spent running from the tears

No innocence I know - but who is these days

And thats why when angels cry  let the world go by - and thats why when angels cry let the world go by 

A request for my redemption

Maybe I don't have the right

Maybe I don't have the right

Maybe I don't have the right

Most of my life I've been strangled with fear

When I need anybody baby I'll let you know

Most of my days I've spent running from the tears

No innocence I know - who is these days

And thats why when angels cry let the world go by - and thats why when angels cry let the world go by

A request for my redemption

Repeat

maybe I dont have the right etc.

Redemption repeat

 Most of my life I've been strangled with fear

when I need anybody baby I'll let you know.

Am I lost in a dream

Or found in your arms

Could this be heaven

I think I'm in heaven

You light up fires in my life

that won't go out now

Some sweet thing 

why can't you just let me be

I want your tender touch

your kiss I won't deny it

Some sweet thing 

Why can't you just let me be

I find myself walking

down some stormy road

in a scene filmed once before

Is this a deja vu 

I feel you coming through

Give me your hands now

Am I lost in a dream 

or found in your arms 

Could this be heaven

I think I'm in heaven

Could this be heaven

You are temptation in my eyes

You're everything

You're the worlds greatest prize you'll see

I want your tender touch your kiss

Come on supply it

Your romantic signs

hold a place in my mind for free

See the older man who cries and sits alone and wonders why

Why I can only be the same as him and realise we're only human to cry to lie and deny

That you hurt someone you'll care for forever

To die and never see why - or what its all about

 

Someone turns a light on - someone goes insane

The child is left to retrieve the ball 

in the garagelands - in the garagelands of pain

Suffer all you bleeding hearts 

Turn from the world and what its doing 

Kingdoms rise - they're all the same you'll realise its all inhuman

To lie -  to lie and deny 

that you hurt someone you'll love forever

To die and never see why 

or what its all about

Someone turns a light on

Someone stop this train

No dancing at the union hall 

in the garagelands - of pain

Sailed out at sunrise

The promised land

Both our hearts-a-pounding, I held your hand in my hand.

A new horizon, a brand new dawn

Waking with the feeling that you'll never walk alone.....

 

Chorus

Sea of Silver, sky of Gold.

Sail away, together we'll grow old 

You're my heart you're my soul

You're my light, you're my heart, you're my soul..........

Sailed in at sunset

Star spangled skies

Both our hearts-a-pounding, tears rolling from our eyes

Land of our Fathers, land of the free

Waking with the feeling that you'll always walk with me.........

Chorus

Sea of Silver, sky of Gold.

Sail away, together we'll grow old 

You're my heart you're my soul

You're my light, you're my heart, you're my soul..........

Chorus

Sea of Silver, sky of Gold.

Sail away, together we'll grow old 

You're my heart you're my soul

You're my light, you're my heart, you're my sou;

You're my light, you're my heart, you're my soul..........
